Planning the Portrait

Then a photography session planned.

The artist requires one sitting, which involves the use of a digital camera. At this time, Ms. Banks will discuss the client's expectations for the portrait and begin shooting several photographs. The artist and client will work together in choosing which photograph(s) best reflect the likeness of the sitter(s). Ms, Banks requires final say on composition for artistic integrity. Commissions usually require 1 to 4 months from start to finish--this is dependent on the size and complexity of the portrait.
